Nonsense

“In reading a novel, any novel, we have to know perfectly well that the whole thing is a nonsense, and then, while reading, believe every word of it.  Finally, when we’re done with it, we may find – if it’s a good novel – that we’re a bit different from what we were before we read it, that we have been changed a little.”

Ursula Le Guin, from her essay “Introduction to the Left Hand of Darkness”

As I’ve been spending today between arguing with an infant on the topic of sleep, and actually writing for real in the few spare minutes I’ve had, I leave you with the above quote to consider.  Now that I’ve finally got the wee beastie to bed, Mama has a date with a glass of wine and the Eurovision semi-finals!!  True erudite thinking can wait until the morning!
